Offering an abundance of rich history, there are many State Parks, the North Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museums and Exhibits at the Gatekeeper’s Museum and Marian Steinbach Indian Basket Museum in Tahoe City and paved biking and walking paths. The north and west shores of Lake Tahoe are made up largely of tiny resort communities with both vacation home and full time residents.
Lake Tahoe is beautifully situated amid the majestic California High Sierra. Lake Tahoe is 6223 feet above sea level, 22 miles long and 12 miles wide. It is the second deepest lake in the United States at a depth of 1,685 feet. Famous for its clarity, you can see up to depths of 70 feet. If the lake were tipped over, its contents would cover California in 14.5 inches of water. The sun shines an average for 274 days each year but snow can fall in any month. At lake level, 125 inches of snow fall annually with 300-500 inches falling at higher elevations.
